    I love a good HW fight, but let's be honest: outside of the top10, HW is pretty awful to watch.

    That big ass dude did a back flip though and didn't almost kill himself doing it.

    I remember seeing that kick and being surprised at how quick it was for someone of Shawn Jordans size. That was about the most exciting thing that happened before the Jones fight

    Well, it's not like this is a proper hook kick. It's like a child watching a Bruce Lee movie and trying to emulate a technique. A very big, clumsy child.

    If I were a HW I would throw really awkward flashy techniques like that from safe distance just to entertain the audience.

    So the guy could use a few sparring sessions with Pat Barry to work on his kicks.

    I mean it wasn't that terrible of a hook kick attempt for a short stocky guy. Wasn't slow as molasses either


    There are a lot more embarrassing moments to use to shit on Heavyweights lol

    LOL... you will have to save your cardio!

    Jordan is an amazing athlete tho... 6 foot, 261lbs and doing backflips.

    I understand you're being hyperbolic - but Paul Felder's fight was thoroughly entertaining the whole way through. With a finish way more exciting.

    And it truly was Felder's fight. Castillo may as well have been a BOB.

    Where's that Kimbo/Alexander gif where they both double over after the bell? Greatness.

    Shawn Jordan
    6ft 260lb man that can do backflips
    Two time state wrestling champ
    LSU record bench of 610lb, power cleans 440lb
    NCAA fullback
    Solid amateur basketballer & track/field star
    Has taken steroids
    KO's dudes in brutal fashion

    He hasn't been in the sport long and I have seen MUCH worse in other divisions from guys with years more experience. Joe Stevens step jump, Daniel Cormier's torando kick, Clay Guida's head movement, Matt Riddle boxin' technique.
